Viale della Moschea (Islamic Center of Italy), Rome

The name of this hill derives from the phrase "ante amnes", i,e. "in front of two rivers", because it is located in the junction point of Aniene and Tiber. Here, in ancient epoch was located a Sabine town Antemnae, to which the famous Raped Sabines belonged.

On the summit of Monte Antenne (62m) is one of the fortresses of the Roman fortification built in 1877-84. The fortified line around Rome was 40km long and had 15 forts: Monte Mario, Trionfale, Braschi, Boccea, Aurelia Antica, Bravetta, Portuense, Ostiense, Ardeatino, Appia Antica, Casilino, Prenestino, Tiburtino, Pietralata and Monte Antenne, plus four batteries: the Nomentana, of Porta Furba, the Appia Pignatelli and the Bassa Tevere. Nevertheless this defense system didn't show much efficacy and was quite quickly surpassed by urbanistic expansion and modern offense techniques. Thus, it couldn't help Rome in anyway in 1943. The only positive result from this enormous undertaking is a system of auto roads connecting the main entrances and exits of Rome.

The Islamic Center of Italy have the biggest mosque in Europe and it is in rome. The Mosque and Islamic Cultural Center is intended to serve the growing number of Muslims that have moved to Rome. The mosque is the only one in Rome and the complex is considered one of the major monuments built in the city in the past few decades. It has become well known outside Rome and Italy as a result of the considerable coverage it has received in a number of international publications.
